Also kind of interesting if you didn't watch. Oakley and Joel Freeman are small basket purists or disciples. Uli and Hokum looked to be on the fence but not against it. I actually think most pro's would be for it.
Where's the drawings for your vaunted smaller basket?

All luck? Who said that? I said certain holes and courses have a higher degree of luck. You definitely need skill to first hit the line with the right disc and power and angle but after that it can be luck. So a combination of both.

Straw?


Help is a phone call away. Not my phone, because I don't care. But somebody, somewhere might. Call them.

The video implies a bullseye basket isn’t enough.

The basket with no top is the only answer to make putting relevant per your standard.

Since you posted the video showing dude slamming putts on the bullseye ouT to 150’, I assume you agree and will forever more promote the empty basket as the solution to boring putting.

No one, anywhere, is concerned about him in the least. Irritated or annoyed on the other hand...

It simply points out that a smaller basket is nothing to be scared of. I think many people think it would be a really drastic change. It wouldn't. It would be a change for sure but not drastic like no one ever throws in anymore or makes 50 footers. Heck Ricky was canning them out to 150 in an hour.

No, no, no! It CLEARLY illustrates that smaller baskets are of no consequence and thus a wasted effort.

To achieve YOUR desired result, the only option is to eliminate the vertical component of the basket.

Prove me wrong.

OMD has shown the light. Smaller baskets are NOT the answer. Empty baskets are the answer. Basket with no vertical component. This video, shared by OMD, shows that even a bullseye basket doesn’t alleviate the long putt.
